December Blizzard 2010

We dodged this storm for the most part. It is windy, but nothing like we see on TV. Some pictures for you:

Some photos of Reyes Point and Muir Woods

I've admired the photography of Tim Bouwer for some time. Recently he traveled with my friend John Weber on a business trip to California. The hiked through Muir Woods and Point Reyes, visited Alcatraz and more. These are my favorites from his album.

A new look for the new year

If you have visited this blog or it's companion Musings you will notice that the design is slightly different. I was having difficulty embedding slideshows and videos and the new layout gives me a much wider palette.

You will also notice new items at that bottom of each posting which allows sharing options for Facebook, Buzz, Mail etc. I have also added some buttons for reader feedback (like, dislike). Comments are always welcome, but they still require a verification step which unfortunately I needed to add to thwart the spammers.

On the right sidebar, I've added a statistics gadget to show how many folks have visited this blog along with the links to the various other family blogs and online venues.

Hope you'll stop by in 2011.

Christmas Music

 In the past it was difficult to find Polish Christmas music. Also I was reluctant to purchase an album for one or two cuts. Imagine buying an entire album of dogs barking Christmas carols. I have a similar album featuring power tools. Fun for a while then really really tedious. Here are two choices of Christmas tunes available for downloads at a reasonable cost.
